To Pattern a Group
You can pattern groups created from UDFs and local groups using Pattern from the shortcut menu.
You can select all the dimensions in the selected group as incremental dimensions except those used to create a feature pattern within the group. When you create a patterned group, one member represents the whole group. When regenerating, however, all the features are regenerated individually.
1. Select a Group, right-click, and select Pattern. The Pattern tool opens.
* Alternatively click Model > Pattern.
2. Create a pattern.
3. Specify the variable dimensions, increments, and number of instances.
